Hilary Tackie

Research Assistant

Hilary has left The Education Trust for her next adventure. Though she is no longer at Ed Trust, we maintain this bio page as a record of the wonderful work she contributed while with us.


As a research assistant at The Education Trust, Hilary analyzes data in support of the K-12 research team and its mission to understand existing patterns of inequity in educational opportunity and achievement.

Before joining Ed Trust, Hilary worked as a research assistant in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at Brown University, aiding in studies exploring the effects of socioeconomic status on experience-based learning as well as several other studies involving learning, attention, and memory.

Hilary holds a bachelor of science from Brown University where she completed concentrations in cognitive neuroscience and Africana Studies.

What are people most surprised to learn about you?

Probably that I am actually proud to be from New Jersey.

Why are you passionate about working at Ed Trust?

There are so many people here that are in love with and dedicated to the work. It’s inspiring to be around people who are willing to fight for others to have their rightful access to a great education no matter their race, class, creed, etc. I know I am part of something important.
